Evidence indicates that prescribing guidelines for healthy and safe amounts of opiates can help improve patient outcomes, and limit the risk of unintended harm. Prescribers and Pharmacists Team is focused on balancing the benefits of medicines with the harm of over-prescribing, and the potential for abuse and addiction. The Action Team develops mechanisms
to reduce the amount of opiate drugs prescribed in Marin by primary care and emergency department physicians and is furthering methods of safe in-home storage and disposal of unused, unwanted, and expired medications.
